3. Meanwhile, peel the cucumbers, cut them in half lengthwise, and cut the
halves into half-inch slices. Peel and pit the mangoes and cut the flesh
into bite-sized chunks. Cut the half bell pepper into thin strips.

4. In a large bowl, combine the potatoes, cucumbers, mangoes and bell
pepper. Add the orange juice, ginger, lemon juice, mint and 1 tablespoon
of the spice mixture. (Place remaining spice mixture in a tightly covered
container and store in a cool, dark place for use in other dishes.) Toss
well, season to taste with salt and pepper, toss again, and serve.
